"- hey Dayo you got something on your back."
Yeah, several people react to the two reptoids. Sisu throws/falls himself from Dayo and bows. He is shaking.
"We found them. That one told us some things." Vera gives a summary of the conversation.
"Yeah yeah whatever we gotta save people including my boyfriend."
"Okay, do you know the place's layout? Could you draw it."
Sisu nods frenetically.
"Do you know where they would keep someone important? Or important things in general?"
And impatient huffs.
With Sisu's help they figure out the base layout. Most dreamshapers are kept in this area on this level. Artifacts stay locked up over there. Other enslaved people stay over there.
"The Arthurss might be in the mothersship. I think..."
Sisu needs some coaxing to explain. The mothership is in Arthur's - the original one - dimension. Something happened and the original Arthur locked himself in there, which is related to how they needed the other Arthur.
Felix nods. "Can you explain the mageborn you have around? What can they do?"
"There's the White who are our ancient enemiess. They don't need to sleep or rest."
"- the white haired people?"
Sisu nods. "Arthur makess them."
Felix is thoughtful.
"Who else?" Vera asks.
"There are ssome that can ssing to control birdss. And ssome who are jusst pretty and fall in love with you."
"But anyone else that could be dangerous?"
Sisu shakes his head.
"...so what now?"
"We figure out how to evacuate the people here, including the other captives. Including Ar- our boyfriend. And his original. Then we go to the authorities?"
"Sounds like a plan. Let's go!"
"Alright. Is there a convenient portal out? Somewhere that we can sneak out without drawing attention and lead people to safety. Away from here."
"There iss a portal to crasshlandss. There iss a path there to village."
"An Earthside village?" Sisu nods. "Alright, lead the way. Can we go from that portal to the mothership?"
"Yess, but on the oppossite direction."
They start moving people. Descending the stairs and following Sisu.
"We probably should split up? Injured folk going one way and people that are going to do the rescue to the other?"
Dayo can step up to one side. She's definitely on the "rescuing people" side.
Well. Jessica doesn't really... trust Dayo's faculties right now. She's gonna go rescue people too.
Felix absolutely will help with the rescue. "What should we do with Sisu? And his companion? Do we take them with us?"
"Dayo is not, uh, super tactically minded right now. I could try to take her place?"
Felix looks at Dayo, looking concerned. "Okay, let's... maybe stash Sisu's companion somewhere out of sight and bring Sisu himself with us. Is there somewhere to hide your friend in the Crashlands?"
"Yess," Sisu answers quickly. "Many cavess."
"That sounds like a good plan!"
They arrive at where the portal is. It's a hallway that looks like it has seen better days (well, hours, it's not that old yet).
Sisu opens it with elaborate hand gestures. The other side reveals a gray rocky desert. There is a military-looking truck that looks like it has been forgotten.
They walkthrough."We can take the truck for the injured people," Vera suggests. "Which way we are we supposed to go?"
Sisu points. "Portal openss if you do thiss," he makes another complicated hand gesture. "Mothersship iss that way." He points to nearly the opposite direction.
"It's so weird that there's a mothership."
